. the obama administration has decided not to defend doma. this couple was married last year after "don't ask, don't tell" was repealed. good morning to both of you and thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> good morning. >> now you have join add lawsuit challenging doma, but your case may be a little more immediate, certainly more urgent than others. charlie, tell us why. >> well, i've been recently diagnosed back in april with less than six months to live. that's been updated to 12. i'm doing really well but that's a big concern because if i were to pass away, karen wouldn't receive any of the spousal benefits, is your viever benefits that are out there. >> what type of cancer are you battling? >> breast cancer. basically stage iv breast cancer. >> charlie, our thoughts are with you. know this is a very tough battle. you got out of the military for ten years and you were typing school, right? so why did you get back in. >> i was teaching school in kentucky and in 2004 i went to a conference and i went to the a conference and was talking about how i had been in the military and a princip
, the republican nominee criticize the obama administration for allowing chavez to expand his influence in the region. >> and our neighbors want to resist the failed ideology of hugo chÁvez and the castro brothers and deepen ties with the united states on trade and energy and security, but in all these places, just as in the middle east, the question is asked -- where does america stand? >> that was mitt romney. danny glover, your response? >> poverty in the area is 40%, near 40% over the last 13 years. in venezuela, and all of the region. part of it is associated with the integration. once you get out into the fields, you begin to talk with people who have worked their way and not with cash handouts, but worked their way out of poverty. that is the real story of achievement, not only in venezuela, the other places as well. >> finally, danny, you have spent time with president chavez. were you with him when he voted? how is his health? he has been treated -- >> i saw someone, and i have not seen pictures of president chÁvez over this ordeal in terms of his health and dealing with his
that the obama administration's policies had left the middle east a more dangerous place than it was four years ago. i can't wait to ask you about that, richard. >> fair enough. >> that speech was fascinating. >> new polls were taken after the debate. what did they will get to it as you zip it. >> whoa. >> the race is tightening with four weeks to go, a new pew research center survey shows romney leading obama 49% to 45% in a national head-to-head match-up among likely voters. those most committed to participating in the november election. there is good news for the romney campaign in michigan, a state where president obama was leading by ten points last month according to the detroit free press. after the debate, the same poll has the president's lead down to three points, well within the margin of error. perhaps the biggest gain for the romney campaign comes from that pew survey, which shows the republican candidate has made huge gains with women voters now tied with the president 47% to 47%. just a month ago, the president had a 56-38 advantage with women voters. what's going on? >> let's st
? is it president obama's policiless or go back to the bush administration and their policiless . i have an opinion that said largely president obama's fail add policiless >> going back to the bill clinton premise. no one could have fixed it in four years. >> that is flat out wrong. >> it may be. but that is very effective argument. >> but we have short memories because ronald reagan fixed a worse recession with his policies in '81 and he was fixing that problem and fixed a terrible recession and brought american back to prosperity. that is all my opinion. >> brian: we'll discuss this at 9:20. >> at length. >> brian: what will you wear for the debate tonight? >> stop it. >> steve: coordinating your wardrobe now. no, padded seats like a dog. >> brian: great to surf with. this is a very serious story. americans murdered in lebia, just bumps in the road and president's recent comments about the benghazi terrorist attacks has our next guest outraged. he is a former navy seal. >> is the bro-mance over. is ben affleck having buyer's remorse. >> oh, no. call the hollywood reporter. ♪ ♪ there's the sig
. bill: has the obama administration taken a position on this. stkphapb. >> president obam on this dan? >> president obama has never been in favor of marijuana usage or recreational use. but the white house and the justice department have been silent on these ballot initiatives. eric holder was sent a letter urging him to speak out. he has not. we've been trying for a weak to get a comment and we are still waiting. >> it is shocking that attorney general holder, that the director, but most of all that k about this. of the united look, it's about health, it's about safety, it's about the future of our country. >> a big question, if it passes in one or two of these states is will the fed step in and enforce federal drug laws because of course bill it will still be illegal according to the federal government even if it's legal in a couple of these dates. bill: thank you. dan springer is on that story in the state of washington, seattle. patti ann: governor romney's speech on foreign policy is under an hour away. it comes on the heels of a big week for the g.o.p. what do they hope to accom
question is, is there any answer from the obama administration. >> reporter: they are tackling this head on. they say this is all about politics. ofa does not accept donations from foreign nat nations or any ineligible individual. and the campaign voluntarily goes above and beyond federal election commitments to insure the integrity of fundraising efforts. they request proof of current and a valid u.s. passport. they say it's in order to comply with all federal election laws. martha,. martha: certainly at order odds with that report. thank you very much. bill: fox news alert right now. because there is new evidence we can report that the white house knew the attack on your consulate in benghazi was the work of terrorists long before admitting it to the american people. fox news learning that a top aid to the secretary of state hillary clinton, patrick kennedy is his name briefed congressional aids the day after the attack, september 12th calling it sophisticated and complex. u.s. ambassador chris stevens among four americans killed in the attack on 9/11. a hearing on what happened in bengha
differences between what a romney ad administration would look like and another four years of president obama might look like? >> even for a person who doesn't think badly of president obama's foreign policy i think it was useful because it reinforced america's need for engagement in the world. general scales was correct, there is military aspect to that which i personally may not consider necessary but i welcome the general tone of more engagement even if i don't think defense spending going up and. tired of wars. tired of unrest. discouraged by the anti-americanism, seen throughout broader islamic world and mood of come home america. let's mend our own problems and heal our own wounds for a while. that is understandable and partly i think right, if we take it too far we can get ourselves into trouble. governor romney arguing not for just more military spending but more effective foreign aid. better coordinated. arguing for a word dare i say sounds like nation-building. places like libya where he wants to do more to help countries get on their feet after revolutions before they have been thr
that is abandoned by the obama administration and it is important to support our allies like israel and support the opposition in syria and obviously touch on the libyan issue with regard to the benghazi attack and the death of four americans including the death of ambassador stevens and our role in the middle east, not being an observer but an active participant . making foreign policy work for the united states. >> steve: you will see the next debate on foreign policy. since the debate debacle for the president they blamed everybody. blaming mitt romney for being a liar . blamed jimm lehrer and even the guy who prepared the president. john kerry. he wants to be secretary of state and so he didn't get in the president's face. there is an item apparently the obama staff knew 10 minutes before it was all over on wednesday night that it was a debacle and convened a conference call and decided to go after romney and hit on big bird and all new ads to have a come back. >> gretchen: apparently the adpeople stayed up all might to have an adto go right away. when president obama was in hollywood . he
he did suggest that israel has the ability to make the decision itself. i by the obama administration has been more his important to give israel any such green light. i think both have said an nuclear weapon is unacceptable but where you may see a little bit more difference is romney may be inclined earlier to bless a israel decision to use force or participate in it in himself. i think it's an important nuance. >> jennifer: very quickly what further sanctions could help to bring iran to the negotiating table? i think the sanctions were already pretty tough. >> i think they are. i think it's a punishment strategy more than a persuasion strategy. you know at some point they agree to a compromise position but basically we're hurting them a lot already. if their oil exports are down by half, the currency has declined by half anyway but the regime may not care, and that's the real dilemma. >> jennifer: sure. i really appreciate you coming inside "the war room" to explain the unrest. all right. political junksies coming up we'll tell you why the preside
's wrong with the entire obama administration, they have a lack of ambition for this country and what it can and should do. but i would also say if he believes that, that tim geithner believes that a public sector job is equivalent to a private sector job. it's not that public sector jobs aren't important. teachers are important, firemen are important, nurses are important. but a public sector job doesn't pay for itself. taxpayers pay for it. a public sector job doesn't create other jobs. a private sector job pays for itself and creates other jobs. i frankly found his statement shocking. both because of its lack of ambition and because of its misunderstanding of what actually drives growth. it's not public sector jobs. >> let me ask you this, under reagan's recovery, were we laying off teachers and firefighters? were state governments laying off teachers and firefighters at this rate? >> no. absolutely not. >> well, that's part of the recovery. our unemployment is where we are right now if republican governors weren't slashing teach eshs and slashing first responders. >> that's a circ
've heard again and again from obama administration officials that the sanctions are beginning to bite and they should be given more time. >> bill: interesting. thank you. good to see you tonight. >>> the boat crash that killed 38 people now at the center of a criminal investigation. police in hong kong arresting seven crew members after a ferry and a large boat slamming into each other late yesterday. at least four children among the many victims there. officials say it appears the crew members on both vessels failed to follow proper procedure. but still no word on exactly what caused that crash. >>> jimmy hoffa is still out there somewhere. police in detroit say they've gotten back the results of tests from a suburban backyard. they were taking samples after a tipster said he thought he saw somebody bury a body 35 years ago. the question was, could it have been the former teamsters boss who disappeared in 1975? well, now we know it's not him. not only that, tests reveal nobody is buried in that backyard. no trace of human decomposition at all. so we go now back to square one. >>> pre
critique of obama as leading from behind, which was from an unnamed administration official at the end of a 8000 word new yorker magazine piece last year. it has become a staple of republican critics of the president's foreign-policy. there are some real differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. those are substantive. romney has called a rush of the number one geopolitical foe of the u.s. promised to the surprise even of his own advisers. he has continued to emphasize that and to say that vladimir putin will get nothing from me. barack obama has emphasized as one of his major foreign-policy accomplishments a reset with russia that has enabled us to get more done, whether it is sending supplies into afghanistan through the northern route, which has become a much more significant issue as there have been problems with pakistan that made it difficult for us to get in and out, or having a new nuclear arms limitation agreement with russia. so that's a substantive difference. there are others as well. when it comes to some of the core middle east issues, how to st
million earmark for the state of illinois which is bankrupt. it violates the obama administration's own earmark policy. it violates it. also, it's strongly opposed by the families, and it sets the stage for the closure of guantanamo baby increasing space for de-- by increasing space either at that prison or at the supermax in colorado. and lastly, it jumps illinois, thompson prison where they were originally thinking of taking the guantanamo people, it jumps them above new hampshire, alabama, every other state of the union. and it's an earmark that they say is not appropriate, and yet they have done this. alisyn: as we you said it, congress -- understand it, congress specifically prohibited the transfer of gitmo prisoners to the u.s. how does this play into that? >> they could right after the election by executive order, they could do this. what they're doing here violates the law. you have never had a reprogramming of $165 million earmark, never been done. and yet they've done it. alisyn: how do you know this'll be used for gitmo prisoners? >> well, you could then put the people into s
economic policy as a campaign issue. the center for national policy on the obama administration's use of drone of strikes. >> i watched on c-span the various congressional hearings and deliberation and public policy on information that is put out by the various think tanks. i like to watch the main interviews that are on sund
with the obama record. >>trace: there is new fallout from the deadly u.s. consulate attack in benghazi. g.o.p. lawmakers say the administration shot down requests for help as the security situation in libya spun out-of-control. more on that. hey! did you know that honey nut cheerios has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. or annuity over 10 or even 20 years? call imperial structured settlements. the experts at imperial can convert your long-term payout into a lump sum of cash today. >> the border patrol has identified the board patrol agent shot and killed doing swoops along the southern arizona border. he is a 30-year-old who was shot and killed. a colleague was slot and wounded. there is still a seven on for any suspects. this is about 15 or eight miles inside from the mexico and u.s. bodier, 90 miles from where brian terry was slot and killed in december of 2010. the border parole station he was working out of was named after brian ter
law and the law would be enforced. that measure failed. but this time around, president obama, his drug czar and the a.g. remained silent. even after getting a letter from nine former heads of the drug enforcement administration urging them to lobby against it. >> it would be shocking that attorney general holder, that director, but most of all, that the president of the united states can't talk about this. look, it's about health. it's about safety. it's about the future of our country. >> there has been this cultural transformation and we see it playing out a little more rapidly in the western states than in other parts of the country. >> we tried for a week to get ahold of the justice department to get a comment on how they would enforce the law if up with tore of these states passed legalized pot. we're still waiting, shep. >> shep: dan springer, thanks. news from the future. dorits stock skyrockets. there is word the main suspect in the disappearance of natalee holloway may soon be a father. listen to this, joran van der sloot serving 28 years because he murdered a woman who i
